Safeguarding Children – for Health (Level 1)

This Safeguarding Children for Health Level 1 course will give you a good grounding in Safeguarding Children. It will explain child abuse awareness, how to recognise abuse and neglect, what to do if you’re a health professional with concerns about the children under your care as well as how to respond to a disclosure.

However, if you’re a member of staff who might be contributing to assessing, planning, intervening in and reviewing the needs of a child and parenting capacity where there are safeguarding concerns; and/or are responsible for making safeguarding referrals to the Police and Children’s Social Care, you may want to consider our Safeguarding

Children for Health (Levels 1 and 2) course instead.

You’ll also have access to additional resource materials, useful links and a refresher guide to keep for future reference.

4 reviews for Safeguarding Children – for Health (Level 1)

I used this online course as a refresher to my safeguarding children training. I found it a useful and informative form of training.
I like the way that you can return to re-read sections and the little games do help to reinforce facts and procedures.

A really interesting and useful course that all of my staff have enjoyed completing. Thank you.

Sam Roberts

A really helpful course with plenty of information!
As a Child-minder who is unable to attend evening courses due to no transport or family to look after my children it was brilliant.
